. >> thank you, rachel. >> all right. the united states senate, while we're talking about it, the united states senate set a record today. also, there is a huge development in one of the wars in our world. also, we have a very important chart that imitates life that may undue the agita you felt this morn. if you are against women against violence act, what does that mean you are for? we have a lot coming up this hour. please stay with us. nobody said an all-in-one had to be bulky. or that you had to print from your desk. at least, nobody said it to us. introducing the business smart inkjet all-in-one series from brother. easy to use. it's the ultimate combination of speed, small size, and low-cost printing. capella university understands nurses are dealing with a than wider range of issues. and there are ever-changing regulations. when you see these challenges, do you want to back away or take charge? with a degree in the field of healthcare or nursing from capella university, you'll have the knowledge to advance your career while making a difference in the lives of patients. let's get s
and is committed to treaties. that's the purview of the united states senate as the senate passed the new-start treaty. all that goes into that negotiation in this particular case, russia, certainly congress has to be involved in that. >> that is very important, senator hagel. i have to tell you there is unease here that may not be in the works. it has been some discussion for some time about private or unilateral or bilateral conversations that congress is not involved in. that's why this was passed. it was just passed. we expect you to comply with that and i take your testimony that you will comply. >>ly comply with all requirements and laws, absolutely. >> thank you, mr. chairman. >> thank you, senator sessions. senator king? >> senator hagel, one of the first meetings i had when i ran for this office last summer was a group of veterans from world war ii all the way up to afghanistan and iraq. one of the things that came up in that meeting is the issue of employability and employment of recent veterans. the suggestion was made that the army and the military has recruiters, people who h

person in your opinion who's intimidated by the israeli lobby in the united states senate. >> well, first -- >> name one. >> i don't know. >> well, why would you say it? >> i didn't have in mind a specific person. >> sir, do you agree it's provocative statement. i can't think of a more provocative thing to say about the relationship between the united states and israel and the senate or the congress than what you said. name one dumb thing we have been goaded in to do because of the pressure of the israeli or jewish lobby. >> i have already stated that i regret the term nlg. >> you said back then it makes us do dumb things. you can't name one senator intimidated. now give me one example of the dumb things we're pressured to do up here. >> we were talking in that interview about the middle east. about positions. about israel. >> now that exchange followed another faceoff earlier today with senator john mccain over the war in iraq. >> will you please answer the question? will you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this coun
for defense secretary chuck hagel. >>> also, an unfolding scandal involving a united states senator denying allegations of prostitution and free plane trips. >>> eight "new york times" reveals its been under attacks for months by someone in china. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." we were bracing for fireworks at today's confirmation hearing for defense secretary nominee chuck hagel but it actually turned out to be even a lot tougher than many of us expected. republicans grilled hagel raising serious questions about his past statements and positions, especially about israel and iran. at times, hagel seemed to struggle to answer some of those tough questions and other times he gave answers he later had to clarify. let's go to our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin. jessica, it was a tough, tough day for chuck hagel? >> reporter: so far it has been, wolf. chuck was battered by republicans, forcing some stumbles and bruising. so far, no knockout blow but the day of questioning is not over yet. former senator chuck hagel sat at the table alone fielding hostile questi
in the united states senate. so a friend of mine -- a friend of his told me yesterday that barney's active lobbying for the job may have hurt him. >> oh, that was clearly the first of the reasons. i don't know behind the scenes he may have given a tongue lashing to the governor behind closed doors. >> bill: right. is cowen saying that -- it's clear he is not going to run, right? >> that was one of the prerequisites that the governor laid down on the job, and cowen is very loyal to him. >> bill: so we know ed marky at least at this point is in. what is scott brown going to do? governor or senator? >> well there's scott brown and then really nobody else. >> bill: yeah. >> he's weighing his options. he has been around talking in the private sector see what he could get in terms of salary and deals. he has been through two very tough campaigns in the last several years. he faces another tough campaign here, and when he finishes this campaign in june he has to roll into 2014 where they are going to try to go at him again if he were to win for a full term. that's when kerry's t
in the united states senate spent our time trying to prevent that 60th. thank god for senator lieberman. i think history has already made a judgment about the surge, sir, and you're on the wrong side of it. and your refusal to answer whether you were right or wrong about it is going to have an impact on my judgment as to whether or not to vote for your confirmation or not. i hope you will reconsider the fact you refused to answer a fundamental question about an issue that took the lives of thousands of young americans. >> senator, there was more to it than just flooding -- >> i'm asking about the surge, senator hagel. >> i know you are and i'm trying to explain my position. the beginning of the surge also factored into what general allen had put in place in anbar province, the sunni awaken iing. we put over, as you know, 100,000 -- >> i'm very aware of the history of the surge and the anbar awakening, and i also am aware any casual observer will know the surge was the fundamental factor led by two great leaders, general petraeus and -- >> i don't know if that would have been required and cost us
that the united states has the strongest military in the world. chuck hagel was a soldier and a senator, but he has been also a highly successful executive in both the public and private sectors. he built a successful company from the ground up. he is a man who knows how to prioritize and make tough decisions. he will listen to and carefully consider the views of our military and civilian leaders and guided them as necessary. fifth, i believe that chuck hagel will be a balanced and responsible voice on a nuclear weapons policy. president reagan said it often and said it well -- "nuclear war cannot be won and it must not be fought." as this committee knows, this of a global nuclear war have thankfully, substantially declined since the breakup of the soviet union. but within nine nations possessing nuclear weapons, with a nuclear weapons usable material and knowledge spread across the globe, and with terrorists is to -- terrorists managed to buy, steel, or make one, we face enormous risks that a nuclear weapon would be used if proliferation continues in places like iran and north korea, and if we
person, in your opinion, who is intimidated by the israeli lobby in the united states senate. >> well, first -- >> name one. >> i don't know. >> reporter: outside the hearing, senators of both parties were critical. >> i'm going to be candid. i think that chuck hagel is much more comfortable asking questions than answering them. >> i don't think it's going very well. >> reporter: hagel was repeatedly pressed by both democrats and republicans to make clear his commitment to israel's security. >> i strongly support israel. >> reporter: and clarify his stand on iran. hagel had voted against declaring iran's revolutionary guard a terror organization. and today, incorrectly referred to the u.s. policy on iran and nuclear weapons as containment. >> by the way, i've just been handed a note that i misspoke. >> reporter: hagel said he fully backs the president's position that iran cannot be allowed to get nuclear weapons and says the u.s. should talk to iran. >> engagement is not appeasement. engagement is not surrender. >> reporter: and tonight administration officials tell me that while this
, senator franken and others have introduced bills in the united states senate to address precisely the questions that you are asking, governor, and we have supported them and we continue to look forward -- as a prosecutor i always want more tools. you know, i see a problem out there and i want to have the tools to fix it. we passed a hate crimes law in 2009 that enables us to work with local law enforcement in much more effective ways to combat hate crimes including but not limited to lgbt motivated violence. so we'd love to have more tools. but, you know, with the tools that we currently have, we're doing as much as we can and i think ruslyn's point about the uptick in the number of complaints we're both receiving, i'm not sure that necessarily reflects, as ruslyn correctly pointed out, that there's an uptick in violence. the doctrine of futility often resulted in less complaints being seen. i think there's a commitment in the federal level to doing our level best on these issues. >> tom, you talk about tools. ruslyn, what kind of tools, part of this is raising awareness, look
clinton is at the crescendo. she's been much more notable secretary of state than she was united states senator first lady. >> isn't it -- any senator is not going to have the power to actually do things -- >> but, bonnie, seriously speaking she's at the crescendo of her career, will be a grandmother some point soon. and if i'm hillary clinton i don't run for president again for however many consecutive years now she's been voted the most admired woman in the u.s. above oprah, above michelle obama and others. and so she really can go out on a high note without that rough and tumble of a campaign. i sat here -- the reason i'm laughing, hillary clinton i sat her eight years ago heard it eight years ago. she was beat by somebody nobody was talked about at the time. it's not going to be easy for 70-year-old hillary clinton to turn back some democrats -- >> won't be quite that -- she'll be 68. >> believe me we always age it out for women, don't we? >> they're not distinguished just old. >> seriously speaking there are a lot of up and comers in democratic party i don't think are going to let
that the tea party brought certainly hasn't gone away. anytime you've got 36 united states senators who voted down sandy relief a couple days ago, you know that something has fundamentally changed about the way that republicans talk about government. so i think it's too early to say that they're dead, but all the things dana points to are good signs and signs of some kind of sanity seeping in. >> and dana, maybe it's all in a name. because i think what continues on for sure is this conservative domination particularly in republican primaries. i mean, here you've got mitch mcconnell being threatened now in kentucky and next year's election from the right. >> right. and the tea party's never really been an organized political force. and i'm using that as a shorthand for the far right that's been dominating the party right now. and as i point out in the column, that force really isn't going anywhere because of the redistricting, because of the way things are structured in the house. and because of this primary system. we also have saxby chambliss bowing out rather than face a primary challenge.
is intimidated by the jewish lobby in the united states senate. >> first, i -- >> name one. >> i don't know. >> why would you say it? >> i didn't have in mind a specific person. >> do you agree it's a provocative statement, that i can't think of a more provocative thing to say about the relationship between the united states and israel and the senate or the congress in which you sit? >> there's been a lot of that today. during the bush years, of course, senator hagel was known as the rebellous republican and maverick, and now a lot of his votes and statements are being brought back by his former republican colleagues. >> shepard: but unless he screws it up he is getting through and the rest is politics. >> it may be still a battle ahead because if one senator objects on the senate floor, it could send the vote up to 60 votes to require passage so that could be trouble. three high profile republicans said they are a no. john cornyn from, senator imhave, and senator marco rubio. another likely no is john mccain who tried to talk to hagel about the troop surge in iraq. >> please an the questio
in the united states senate. >> i already stated i regret the terminology. >> but you said back then it makes us do dumb things. >> reporter: if confirmed, he would be the loechb republican in the cabinet, also the first vietnam veteran in the position. his supporters argue that experience makes him uniquely qualify. every senate democrat is expected to support the confirmation. he also has the support of at least one rep, but he'll need four more to prevent a filibuster. >>> there will be a new trial for the man convicted in the so-called georgetown cuddler case. the judge overturned the 2010 conviction of 26-year-old todd thomas. in the decision, he says the original judge in the case wrongly allowed thomas' prior convictions to be presented to the jury. the jury convicted thomas for 11 counts of burglary and assault. prosecutors saying between 2007 and 2008, he brought into the homes of georgetown university students and assaulted them. >>> there's a question about whether the man who has been going around groping women in northern virginia has done it again. yesterday a woman said somebody g
the nation's economy. it deserves our support in the united states senate. i congratulate speaker boehner on his leadership with regard to this issue and the house for its bipartisan approach to a tough but necessary vote. let us pass this legislation today and move on to debate over what further deficit-reduction options need to keep america's economy moving forward. in the words of lincoln, "the occasion is piled high with difficulty and we must rise with the occasion." thank you, mr. president. i yield the floor. a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from utah. mr. hatch: mr. president, right now the federal debt stands at roughly $16.4 trilli trillion. i don't know how anyone can hear that number and not be appalled. nor do i believe there's been -- there will be over ten years $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction. in fact, i don't see any deficit reduction except perhaps bringing our soldiers back. but that's not particularly deficit reduction, since it looks like we're going to have difficulty maintaining the military in the -- with the strength that it's had in

in your opinion who is intimidated by the israeli lobby in the united states senate. >> well, first. >> name one. >> i don't know. >> why would you say it? >> i didn't have in mind a specific person. >> jennifer: that, too went on and on. after the hearing graham, who up until that point had been none noncommittal told foreign policy magazine that he was unlikely to vote for hagel. others went further. senator dan coates gave a 15 minute speech said he would vote no. hagel's performance did not earn him much praise from the other side of the aisle. here is senator claire mccaskill. >> well, i'm going to be candid. i think chuck hagel is much more comfortable asking questions than answering them. that's one bad habit you get into when you've been in the senate. you can dish it out but sometimes it's a little more difficult to take it. >> jennifer: interesting. she declared claire mccaskill mccaskill, to say if she would vote for him. joining me now is nicholas burns, former u.s. ambassador professor of dip diplomacy. >> thank welcome to "the war room"." >> thank you. >> jennifer: it

to send me to the united states senate. yesterday, nearly three decades after the people of massachusetts voted me in the office, the people i work with in the senate voted out. as always, i accept the senate sound judgment. eight years ago i admit i had a very different plan from a slightly different to read the senate, the 61 billion americans voted they wanted me to stay here with you. and so, stay in here learned about humility and sometimes the greatest lesson in life comes not from victory, but dusting yourself off after her defeat in starting over when he did not sound. i was reminded throughout this journey is something often said, but not always fully appreciated. all of the senators are only as good as their staff. i sat the kids up nights and weekends, postpones vacations, doesn't get home in time to type children in bad and all those last moments because they are here hoping to serve. they are not elected. they didn't get into public service to get rich. that's for sure. and their names are rarely in the newspapers. but from the stuff in the mail rooms to the people who answer
of nebraska in the united states senate i cast over 3,000 votes. hundreds of committee votes. i have also a given hundreds of interviews and speeches and written a book. so as you all know, i am on the record. i am on the record on many issues, but no one individual vote, no one individual quote, no one individual statement defines me. my beliefs, my record. my overall world view has never changed. that america has and must maintain the strongest military in the world, that we must lead in the international community to confront threats and challenges together. and take advantage of opportunities together. that we must use all our tools of american power to protect our citizens and our interests. >> i want to bring in dana bash from capitol hill along with fran townsend who's back with us here. dana, give us a sense of the mood and tone in the hearing so far. do we think he's doing well in terms of convincing critics that he's the guy for the job? >> he's certainly trying. but he definitely has critics on a whole host of issues. we knew that going into it. they are not being shy about voi
